Thanks for the reports. I have rolled back that game to the previous turn. The next version will have additional error checking which should prevent the game from getting into this state.

Thanks for the reply and the fix!

Here's something else, apparently a missing texture.

When light vehicles carrying passengers are destroyed, the transported unit appears next to the the vehicle before the death animation. It's very odd, and also occurred in BA1. It's particular jarring when a mortar unit is the attacker. Before the first round is lobbed, the passengers are dumped on the roadside.

Happened again. Should this game just be abandoned?

Units under fire are getting promotions.

Another function that BA has had.

Either way, this should no longer happen in version 0.1.2.

I have run into this in original EAP, have not seen it yet in 0.1.2 but continue to see units getting promotions after firing but unit fired at only had morale decrease. In BA1, I only saw promotions after enemy unit destroyed or surrendered.

Other weird thing is that I am seeing units retreat forward towards the attacking units as they could not retreat away due to terrain, other units, etc. Seems kind of unrealistic, if could not retreat then I would have thought surrender or remain in place.

Maybe I just never ran into it in BA1 but seems unlikely.

PS: I prefer the previous victory location flags over the icons used in last EAP update

I have rolled it back again. Please let us know if this continues to happen with the new version.

Units will still receive some experience when making a morale-reducing shot in v0.1.2.

As they did in BA 1, units can "retreat forward" to reach better cover.

This game file continues to be troublesome. The game has ended but I am prompted to send it back to the other player. The server won't allow this, so the game is stuck in my list of games to be played.

Are you still receiving the error message shown in the screenshot, or something different? Has your opponent been receiving any error messages?

No, not anymore. The game has ended. My opponent surrendered, but the game is prompting me to send it back to the other player, which fails.

It seems to have been resolved, either by your team or the update. Thanks

I had rolled back that particular game, but the issue potentially still remains. The problems you have been encountering appear to be caused by issues the game wasn't handling during your opponent's upload so I am still very interested to hear if that player is getting error messages or noticing any unusual behaviour.

Thanks for you patience.

Sorry, I didn't hear anything from my opponent on any issues. Perhaps the player will see this thread.
